Joy Christmas Mini Album for BoBunny

Standard

Hello there Peeps! Seems like I’ve been  busy creating loads of Christmas Cards and gifts with my favorite Carousel Christmas Collection. I’m out of my card zone for this project…I created a little itty bitty mini album.

Joy Christmas Mini Album by ginny Nemchak using BoBunny Carousel Christmas and Pentart

Oh how I love these shabby chic inspired holiday papers!!!  I’ve incorporated a Double Dot chevron paper in the background so I could stencil on some shimmery stars.  They add loads of texture and detail without making the background busy. Pearly bling helps to dress up the flowers and tree and add a little sparkle. Bits and pieces from the Ephemera pack are tucked in to fill in the arrangement.  The chipboard was the inspiration for the ribbon choices.

Inside the mini each set of pages has a pocket to hold tags and extra little fussy cut images to adorn the pictures and journaling. I chose to use a spiral binding so the book can lay flat when open.

The doily die cut creates a lovely picture mat as well as a faux lace look on the pocket. I used a bit of the 3D Powder to create a snowy effect in the snow globe…..I think it’s my favorite part of the whole mini.

Okay Peeps that’s all for me. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative.

Believe Christmas Greeting Card

Standard

Hello everyone! I’ve been a busy little bee creating loads of Christmas projects and I’ve fallen into a Victorian groove lately. Or at least this is my version of it. I think it’s the scripty font on sentiment die cut and the vintagy Santa.

Believe Frosty Window Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

This combination of paper patterns reminds me of wall paper in a lovely old house in England. Not that I’ve ever been. Maybe someday. Travel goals.

Believe Frosty Window Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

The chipboard window is finished to look very antique and has faux snow in the panes to look like a frosty Christmas scene.

Believe Frosty Window Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

Holiday die cuts are layered here with spacers for depth and some have more of the “snow.”

A tiny number tag is clipped on to accent the window. All of the elements here are layered over a pretty die cut doily in crisp white.

Peace and Joy Bi-Fold Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

I am a little bit obsessed with creating flowers and to make these coordinate with the holiday theme I added Prills and faux snow.

Peace and Joy Bi-Fold Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

Can we just talk about these snowflakes???? I just got some shabby embossing powder with tiny gold flakes in it and I think it puts these chippies over the top.

Peace and Joy Bi-Fold Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

Adding sequins here cuz that’s what I do lol.

Peace and Joy Bi-Fold Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

More flowers and die cut leaves. Tucking in a little loopy twine bow really fills in the arrangement.

Vintage Santa Love Christmas Greeting Card

Standard

Hello everyone! I hope you enjoyed a lovely holiday with your family. This year we had two Thanksgivings  so that we could spend time with all the Peeps. Last night we had dinner with our Niece and her Husband and family. It was really a great time with delicious food and new friends!

But back to work today…..Santa’s elves never rest after all. I’m sharing a Christmas greeting card with a gorgeous Santa image.

Vintage Santa Love Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

The images are traditional….but I think it has almost a Victorian theme. Maybe it’s the font on the  sentiment die cut?

Vintage Santa Love Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

I know I’m obsessed with vintage buttons….but this is a record amount for me to add to one card. And I ain’t even mad lol.

Vintage Santa Love Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

Pretty coordinating  trims and flowers : )  I’ve layered in a die cut wreath here as well and tucked in a crisp white doily to create a base for the embellishments.

Vintage Santa Love Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

Have you noticed a trend here with the dark plaids?  If I’m being honest….I want to put plaid on every project from now on.  This time it’s paired with black patterns on kraft cardstock and I love how it turned out!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my peeps who are celebrating today! I am thankful for each and every one of you. I’m hoping you have a happy and blessed day full of family and fun and especially pie…lots and lots of pie!

I wish I had a Thanksgiving card to share today…but I’ve already shared all of them so I’m staying on the Christmas theme.

Most Wonderful Time of the Year Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

I super love this card. The chipboard frame really pops against the dark colored patterned papers.

Pretty holiday inspired flowers and die cuts are layered over Christmas images and a crisp white diecut doily.

This tree is so pretty. My favorite piece from the ephemera pack.

I’ve balanced the larger arrangement with a giant poinsettia. I really love poinsettias….but we have cats so it’s not safe to decorate with them here : (

Pearls seem to be a classy little accent on this card with darker colors….like a pearl necklace on a little black dress.

Merry and Bright Snow Globe Christmas Greeting Card

Standard

Hello everyone! I’m still having so much fun playing with my Christmas crafting supplies and I’ve created a sweet card to share today with some holiday elements and some surprise additions.

Merry and Bright Snow Globe Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

This little snowman is just too cute.  It’s really a snow globe…..but I got a little carried away with the flowers…tee hee. And look…..vintage buttons. I bet you never saw that coming lol.

Merry and Bright Snow Globe Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

I bet you weren’t expecting blue flowers on a Christmas card right? But I think they look perfectly coordinated to the image. I used a bit of faux snow to give them more of a wintry look.  There are also silvery  berry clusters tucked in along with red flowers and twine.

Merry and Bright Snow Globe Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

I decided to use a double cardstock matting here to really make the layers pop. I really love this combination of red plaid and blue.

This smaller arrangement balances the larger one. I’ve added Stickles to the leaves to accent them and make them more festive. You can see I’ve added a few pearls too….because you can never have enough bling.

Silent Night Winter Birds Christmas Greeting Card with Video Tutorial

Standard

Hello everyone and welcome back! I’m sharing a lovely nature inspired Christmas greeting card today that I created using the Winter Birds Christmas Tags printable from our shop. I really do love birds in winter….well all the time really. But there’s just something so sweet about a fragile little creature out in the elements and still being lovely.

I chose the patterned papers to coordinate with the tag. The dark red paid balances the holiday foliage pattern.

 These super beautiful flowers are new to RRR and I can not even tell you how much I love them!!! I’ve made a small arrangement here with the blooms and altered chipboard and glittery accents.

The die cut wreath matches the one on the tag perfectly and creates a nice base for all the layers. Adding a bit of chunky twine and a simple tied bow of satin ribbon helps to balance the flowers and tucking in a doily helps to break up the busy patterns.

I am obsessed with actual vintage buttons and I always think they are well worth the work to scour antique shops to find them…like a vintagy treasure hunt.

All I needed to finish this card was a tiny sentiment and clip in holiday green.

We’ve prepared a process video for this card so you can see how it was created.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.

Vintage Santa Bingo Christmas Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Did I ever tell you how much I love adding GSL chippies to my Christmas projects? Well I do…..so much. And I can alter them for any style so that makes them pretty much the perfect embellishment. For this card I’m mixing a bit of vintage with a bit of retro and I think it’s pretty fabulous!

Vintage Santa Bingo Greeting Card

 

I used the chipboard to create a bit of a frame for this Santa image.

 

I choose the colors to coordinate with the papers.

 

And layered them up to create a lovely focal point on this card.

Then topped it off with gorgeous flowers and holiday embellishments.

A bit of ribbon and vintage buttons and voila…Christmas perfection : )

 

I selected the chippies and wiped them down to prepare them for altering.

Embossing powder is a great way to add detail. I’m using silver for the frame and metallic red for the berries.

I finished the snowflakes in white with a sparkly top coat and the stars in chartreuse because it’s fun to say and it looks very vintagy.

Here’s the pan for the arrangement. It looks so festive!!!

Loving the retro and vintage style mixed up.
